Forum: movies Subject: The 39 Steps request

Any chance of somebody uploading a high-quality (1 GB) mp4 of this film to the Archive, along the lines of what others have done for The Lady Vanishes and His Girl Friday? This is a true classic--maybe the best film available from the archive--but the audio & video quality of the mp4 files (at about 250 mb) is pretty poor.

Public Domain Torrents has it available. Unfortunately, there aren't very many connections right now.

Thanks for the tip--however, looks like that iPod ready mp4 is still about 230 mb--pretty low quality. I am hoping for a 1 gb one like the Lady Vanishes and His Girl Friday mp4s here at the IA.

You could download the MPEG2 and transcode it in MediaCoder. It has support for iPods.
